Thank You Nadiyah

The EnglishClub Team would like to say a special thank you to MyEC member Nadiyah who has been our Photo Gallery Moderator for two years. Before Nadiyah became a volunteer, the MyEC photo gallery¬†was a bit of a junkyard. It was full of photos that were copied from the Internet. Most photos had no titles or descriptions, and weren’t very useful for practising English. Slowly, but surely, Nadiyah began to teach members how to make the MyEC Photo Gallery a space for learning and practising English. She did this with patience, dedication, and creativity. Like any great teacher, she provided great models that members could use in order to follow the photo guidelines. Nadiyah also held several Photo Challenges on her MyEC blog. People who participated forgot that they were learning English as they played along. Nadiyah’s English also improved tremendously as she taught members how to practise English with images. Nadiyah’s blog is a treasure of ideas for English teachers. The photos she takes are always excellent as well.

Nadiyah is a busy woman and has asked for a break from her duties as a MyEC mod. We will miss her help so much but are so grateful for everything she has done to make MyEC a fun, safe and creative place for practising English. We hope to have a new Photo Mod starting soon, and Nadiyah will undoubtedly have some tips to share. Perhaps she will return to her volunteer position when life gets a little less hectic!

  11. Dear Sister Nadiyah,

    I wish you all the best and I know better than many, how sometimes our work-life can interfere with other things…
    Priorities MUST be recognized:
    Self and family first is the only sensible way-
    Work must be second unless we are very wealthy and don’t need the money-
    Finally, volunteer work can be done if we have optional time-

    You really helped me when I first started posting photos.
    You helped us all to be good members and learn the rules for photos. Tara is right in that you brought organization from chaos.

    I’m sure that it will take more than one person to keep up with all the work that you managed to do despite your own personal obligations.

    You have earned your rest and it is time for you to relax and only visit here when you want to see friends. All of you moderators have my undying respect. MyEC would not be the same with your sacrifices to keep this going.

    Remember that we love you sister and we will be here for you anytime you need us.
